TQD Castings WWII Russian paratrooper 1/72.

Hello all,

See I am not lying two posts in as as many days! This bloke came from a set of TQD casting figures and as normal these figures are top notch.I am not to sure about the uniform or not so i winged it a bit.
A very simple Khaki jump smock did not take long.

The jump helmet was a simple Vallejo earth brown and goggles was painted with steel.

The webbing and pouches were Vallejo German camouflage beige.

A simple wash of burnt umber brought out the details.

A good brushing of Tamiya weathering powder toned  done everything.

The buckles were a pain in the arse!
A cracking set of figures, much better than the Zvezda offering so I would invest in this set.

PLEASE CLICK ON IMAGES FOR A LARGER VIEW AND ANY COMMENTS WOULD BE MORE THAN WELCOME.

Cheers for looking,   Rich.
